Dry skin from hot tub soaking? Switch to a hot tub with salt water
March 10, 2017
Do you have dry skin? You need salt water in your hot tub.
Oh, what a feeling! For many hot tub devotees, the way it makes them feel while they soak and afterwards is the essence of hot tubbing. Those beneficial feelings include relieving pain, releasing tension, lessening the effects of arthritis, and others. But not all the sensations are wonderful, especially the dry skin that can result from exposure to hot tub chemicals and hot water.
There is a solution, and it is ancient in its origin: Bathing in warm salted water. It was a practice known as thalassotherapy (from the Greek word thalassa, meaning “the sea”) and recommended over 2500-years ago by none other than Hippocrates himself. He observed that fishermen were able to heal quicker, and had fewer infections, when they soaked their injured hands in salt water. No wonder he’s considered the “Father of Medicine”.
Hot Spring Spas has taken this “wisdom of the ages’, modernized it, and made it available in their hot tubs. It’s called the Ace Salt Water System and it’s a breakthrough in hot tub water care.
The magic of salt water bathing lies in its ability to stimulate circulation, which aids the skin by increasing its capacity to retain moisture. This can reduce the effects normally caused by certain types of hot tub chemicals. Furthermore, an Israeli study in the early 80’s found that salt water soaking helped to reduce the skin scaling and itching caused by dry skin. Salt water also helps to relax muscles, ease pain, and reduce the inflammation of joints and muscles.
With the advent of the ACE Salt Water System in 2009, Hot Spring revolutionized hot tub water care. In the last eight years, customers have given it a resounding thumbs up. It truly makes a difference in the quality of the hot tub experience, due to the way your skin feels after soaking.
Since the Ace Salt Water System is fully integrated into Hot Spring Spas, and not an aftermarket add-on product, the performance and ease of operation are smooth and seamless.
